I'm glad this movie was only 50 minutes long, thus technically making it not an actual movie. It was so crappy it could have been shorter. It is made by a Christian movie company and is about a secret agent that has to sneak into Cold War era Romania to rescue the daughter of a scientist who defected from Cuba who is being held hostage. She got arrested for smuggling bibles into Communist held Eastern Europe and her ransom is her father. The US isn't going to give him up, so they send in Anthony Tyler Quinn, Mr. Turner from Boy Meets World, to rescue her. It was so poorly made and the girl they got to play the daughter may be the worst actress in history. And there was the invariably annoying scene where she throws a fit about him killing people. Maybe the most ridiculous scene was where Mr. Turner becomes a Christian, whispering some nonsensical prayer while the daughter is asleep, and bad guys are looking for them. Not that I'm against accepting Christ, just poorly constructed scenes about it. This was awful!
